Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Brakes failed, vehicle brought to a stop using 1st gear and parking brake, narrowly avoiding accident. Parked in parking lot and brake fluid drained to pavement. Dealer advises replacement of all brake lines as all are severely corroded (estimated cost - $2,400). Vehicle is exactly 5 years old with not many miles. Used in Canada in the summer and Florida in winter months. Only exposure to salt and snow is when encountered on trips to and from Florida. Vehicle was undercoated at purchase. Very dangerous failure, most certainly must have been fatalities given the number of reports and could have been us yesterday or when towing 5th wheel rv.

While stopping at slow speeds on dry roads my ABS brakes kick in causing my vehicle to take longer to stop than normal. The brake pedal also drops toward the floor causing me to think I have lost my brakes completely. This has just started, and has happened to me numerous times. I never now when this will happen to me causing me to be on edge every time I have to stop. I read about this problem with GM trucks and went and spoke with my local dealer's service manager. He told me that this has been an ongoing problem for years. He said that there was a recall on certain model years, but my year truck was not on the recall list. I asked him how it was possible that GM would let the same problem go on newer year models while fixing others? he said he did not know. I asked him how much it would cost me to have the service department fix my truck. He said it all depends on what parts were needed to make the repairs, and could cost me anywhere from $150 to $2,000. I don't understand how GM can get away with charging some customers to fix the same problem that has been taken care of under recalls in the past. The service manager told me I could pull the fuse on my ABS system and the problem would stop, of course doing this would mean I would not have ABS brakes any longer, or I could wait and see if my model year makes the recall list in the future. When I pay good money for a safety item on my truck, I expect it to last longer than 42,000 miles, and I don't think I should have to play russian roulette and drive a truck with unsafe brakes hoping it will be put on the recall list in the future. This problem not only makes my truck unsafe for me and my family, it also makes it unsafe for everyone near it as I drive down the streets, and highways. Please don't let GM get away with letting this safety problem go unfixed just because my model year truck is not on the recall list.
